Letter: Police deserve credit for doing a great job

Police deserve credit for doing a great job

A few days ago, I was out Christmas shopping when I received a frantic call from my daughter saying my parked car was struck in a hit-and-run. The driver sped off and there was considerable damage to my car, so we called Amherst Police. An officer came and surveyed the damage, and collected some debris from the other car.

Within a couple of hours, we received a call with the make, model and color of the car we were looking for. Within another 24 hours, the officer called to say that he had the car and the driver.

I saved at least $500 from having to pay a deductible and a possible rate increase. I’m impressed and grateful for the professional way the men and women of the Amherst Police Department helped me. It was a nice Christmas present.
